Bartholomew Orr, the pastor of Brown Missionary Baptist Church in Southaven, made sure his congregation got the message that Jesus Christ was was coming back in a sermon he preached on Sunday when he zip-lined down to his pulpit."Are you ready? Are you ready for His return?" Orr asked his congregation while flying in on the zip-line."The day is going to come when the sky is cracked and Jesus Christ comes again."

Orr said he is a"prop preacher" and often uses props to illustrate his message. He said the zip-line was perfect for his message."It fit really with the message that I was preaching. What better way than to say He's coming back. Are you ready for his return," Orr said during an interview after a video of the sermon went viral.

But some people have criticized Orr for using the prop.https://www.nbc4i.com/news/u-s-world/preacher-flies-into-pulpit-on-a-zip-line-in-viral-video/1627931722

Orr said he is a"prop preacher" and often uses props to illustrate his message. He said the zip-line was perfect for his message. I think that people tend to judge everyone who is in the spotlight. Looking and waiting for a mistake to happen, for flaws to show up and so on. But because of that, his video became viral and actually helps reaching other people and learn more about the words of God.

What can you say about his way of preaching? Is it good or bad?

Schools can barely afford basic supplies while churches can afford this ridiculous thing. Tax the churches.

"Other pastors: “We have enough donations to repair the pipes or feed the hungry...”
Bartholomew Orr: “Imma fly in like Superman Baby Jesus.”"

How about y'all catch him on the Internet on Sundays and you'll see that his ministry always goes above and beyond to reach ALL persons in the audience.

What if that piece has been in their church for years? Maybe it was being used for another event when Pastor Orr decided to use the harness. It wasn't like he went out and bought it for this.

I'd like to say that everyone has their own way to send the message they want to convey. It just happened that this pastor is using props and we people are so judgmental for having the bad idea on his way of preaching.
